Folding Bike


BSA Paratrooper folding bike. Best folder Ive ever seen, and an extraordinary design-brief to boot; imagine bailing out with this on your back... I tend to think though, that the wing-nut on the top tube could have been underneath... Ouch! The brakes could have been just a rear coaster, really, to save weight/bits busting on landing. Also note axle-only type pedals; this seems to be a common riding style in 3rd world countries too- do they know something we dont? Could be a gram-saver!

  1. The models like an old bike. but in my opinion, sufficient to give an artistic impression.
